Allsopp’s Arctic Ale 1852  – One of the Costliest Beers in town

Price: $503,300

The 141 year old beer was prepared for an expedition in the cold North. Prepared in 1951, it is not even considered drinkable. This ale was brewed for an explorer, Sir George Nares, for his campaign to the Arctic. Since it’s the oldest ale and the only one to be sold for such a high price, we thought we’d give it its due respect. Although not drinkable but still an ale, Allsopp’s Arctic Ale comes first in our list of the costliest brew in the history of mankind.

Cantillon Loerik 1998

Price: $2583

This beer was made just this one time and has around 5% ABV Gueuze. Because of the make of it, it the prices are high as well. A jug of this beer was sold at the price of $2,583. In 2014, the beer was sold at Skinner Auctions. Even now it is considered the costliest container of brew that was ever sold by any bartending house. The prices now must have even gone higher because getting your hands on one of these is a tough job. The possibility of ever coming across it would be highly improbable.

Nail Brewing Antarctic Nail Ale

Price: $1815


Nailed it!

Australian made Antarctic Nail Ale is produced by the Nail Brewing. The reason behind its high price was that the water used in the beer came from Antarctic water. The lager was made in combined efforts by the Nail and the Sea Shepherds. The profits gained by the Ale Company were donated to Sea Shepherd Conservation Society. Nail Ale only released 30 bottles of these. Therefore they changed their prices. Originally, the main container was loaded in 2010 with just $800. Finding this brand is now impossible. And if you are able to find it, consider yourself lucky and try to get a sip of it.
